Automotive news in the second and third weeks of January is usually dominated by the newest cars and trucks from the Detroit show, but this year we’re hearing just as much, if not more, about the various punishments and legal difficulties besetting automakers and their suppliers. The FBI arrested a VW executive. Takata, the subcontractor
Shelby cars have always been a part of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, and this year, they displayed and unveiled some awesome examples.

Multiple 6 seconds passes!! Good enough?
Since this car’s timeless design remains, you have to wonder what would happen if GM built this very same 1968 model GTO all over again, with new mechanicals and safety features. What market segment doesn’t love the idea of a powerful, front-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door coupe? It would be like buying a perfect restomod straight
Out here on the West Coast, Southern California to be exact, we aren’t accustomed to putting away our cars for a given amount of time due to inclement weather. At least that was the case until the winter of 2017 when the skies opened up and gave us the wettest rainy season we’ve seen in

The Chrysler 300 SRT8 is a sleeper-a four door sedan-without a hood scoop, no spoiler on the back, and no rumbling exhaust; this car doesn’t stand out in a crowd this version actually looks almost identical to its platform mate the six cylinder entry level model. What the 300 STR8 does is respond emphatically when
Have you seen nitrogen offered for your tires-possibly at a very low price as well-the theory behind it is that the tires do not expand and contract as much with warm or cold conditions -which is a half truth-Ordinary air is about 78% nitrogen content.
